Complaint has of ten been made that wood stealing has been earned on, but up to to day little notic has been taken of the diminishing wood piles. Today, however, L. O. Solberg, proprietor of a shoe shop on Beltrami avenue, publishes a notice in another column of thelegislature Pioneer, in which he gives due to certain residents of one of the business blocks of the city to the effect that if his wood is again molested he will cer tainly make it hot for them.

No Court Sept. 20. Little business will be done by Judge Spooner on Sept. 20, as the day is a legal holiday and it is probable that as soon as court sets it will be ad]curned until the following- day. Judge Spooner authorizes the Pioneer to state that no blame will be laid upon grand jurors who do not attend the first day, as many will prob ably wish to remain at home to vote at the primary election. Men Scarce. T. J. Miller & Co. report that they haye been receiving orders almost daily for men for the woods, but at present the orders are hard to fill, as men are yery scarce. The wages are good and the demand at this time is for sawyers and swampers. The exodus from northern Minnesota to the Dakota harvest fields is large and this is probably the cause of scarcity. Notice. To Saloonkeepers in the Lum bermen State Bank Block: If you are not able to furnish your own wood let the undersigned know. I would like to have my private wood uninterfered with. If this is not complied with you will suffer the consequences. Yours truly, L. O. Solberg. Cloquet Next Sunday.

WILL HELP S Chief Forestor Pinchot Thinks Forest Reserve Good Thing For Us. Chief Forestor Pinchot has just completed a visit to the for est reserve at Osiss. Lake and left yesterday for Washington. In regard to the reserve Mr. Pin said: The principal object of the re serve are chiefly: To keep tim ber land growing timber and to prevent waste and destruction by fire. Both of these objects it promises to accomplish thor oughly well. Northern Minne sota will be richer be richer not only in timber and watei because of the reseave, but the towns in the neighborhood of it will bene fit constantly more and more, both from the industries and from the summer travel which the reserve will create. Since there arc 12.0r 0,000 acres of un occupied agiicuitural land in northern Minnesota, it can scarcely be claimed that the 231 000 acres, mainly of timber land in the reserve, is hindering the development of the state. It can hardly be said that Mr, Pinchot views are shared by the people of this vicinity. Circulates Petition. A. M.

Straw: "We shall soon be ready for business, the bal ance of our shoe stock being- ex pected every day.

Dunealf: -'Chicken shoot ing this year is not what the real thing has been cracked up to be. Nevertheless despite the wet weather the first few days we got a string bigger than any I have seen. But if I had to live in Lambert or go to jail I would lake* the latter right qu'ek."
